Polish Jews plan to hold their own ceremony in Warsaw’s synagogue next month to commemorate the 1,600 Jews massacred in 1941 by their Catholic neighbors in the village of Jedwabne. Stanislaw Krajewski, a member of the board of the Union of Polish Jewish Congregations, said the July 6 ceremony was meant as a “complement, not a competition” to the official July 10 commemoration at Jedwabne, at which the state will unveil a controversial new monument at the site where Jedwabne’s Jews were tortured and burned to death in a barn.
